GE Free Kamloops will host a screening of “Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling us?” a winner of 10 international film festival awards described by Roger Ebert as ““A remarkable documentary that’s also one of the most beautiful nature films I’ve seen.”
The movie is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from the award-winning director of THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN. Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this alarming and ultimately uplifting film weaves together a dramatic story of the heart-felt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers around the world. This spellbinding film explores the long-term causes that have led to one of our most urgent global food crises, illuminating the deep link between humans and bees. The story unveils 10,000 years of beekeeping, highlighting how that historic and sacred relationship has been lost. Inspiring and entertaining, QUEEN OF THE SUN uncovers the problems and solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.
